Overall Rating: 8/10

Appearance: Medium brown like a dark chocolate would be; 6 pre-broken blocks with a huge stylized “Manoa” one in the middle.
Smell: Sweet and creamy but herbaceous in a still-sweet way.
The Melt & Snap: Hard melt & strong snap.
Taste: Cocoa and sweetness hits first, and then the lavender and some wood & creaminess that melts into a sweet lavender finish. It’s never bitter or overlysweet.
Complaints & Complements: Like a tiny bag, each plastic-wrapped bag come in the outer packaging, which is opened like a present. It is well-packaged and portable.
